Millionaires, Mansions and Moonshine



Prohibition Era DC was awash with scandal!

Jul 29, 2021 - Jul 27, 2023.

This multi-sensory experience explores the neighborhood at the heart of it all: DuPont Circle. From the Gilded Age through the Jazz Age, DuPont was a playground for the nation's wealthy elite and a showcase for their opulent mansions. Throughout Prohibition, a river of illegal booze flowed through this high-powered enclave. Among these palatial homes, you’ll hear the saga of the city's king makers and lawbreakers (often the same folks) and how their bygone realm was awash in splashy scandals, intrigue amp; corruption.

  • Meeting Point: Center of DuPont Circle, by the fountain
  • Duration: Approx. 2 Hours (walking)
  • Starting Time: 1PM or 7PM (Th, Fri, Sat)
  • Highlights: Mayflower Club Speakeasy, Warren G. Harding's Corrupt Cabinet, Illegal Booze in the Capitol Building, The Brewmaster's Castle
